Axle swap pros and cons

I wanted to see what you all thought of swapping in a Dana 44 and a chevy 10 bolt under the jeep. Does anyone know how much wider they are than the stock axles?

I have dana 44 ft and 12 bolt rear, out of 79 k5. Thats what I wanted, because of how high I was going. I wanted a wider stance to change my center of gravity. If I'm not mistaken they are 6''-7'' wider.


Con.. my chevy dana 44 in front did not work with np231, hog head is on the pass side
